Flow Psychology

Mindfulness & Meditation

A vast body of empirical evidence, drawing from the principles of Eastern spiritual traditions, has been building over the past four decades. This has offered us a neuroscientific map of what higher levels of human functioning look like.

In terms of paths to mental wellness and individuals fulfilling their full potential, we now know that Mindfulness and Meditation practices induce large scale neuroplasticity to promote higher level development in cortical areas, especially the pre-frontal cortex. Every time we do something deliberate and new, we stimulate neuroplasticity, activating our grey matter, eliciting distinct neural changes and corresponding benefits.

Five Good reasons to meditate:
Understanding one’s pain: physical, emotional, or existential 
Lowering stress
Connecting better, both with self and others
Improving focus
Reducing brain chatter

Styles of Mindfulness Meditation
  • Mindfulness meditation cultivates non-judgmental awareness, discipline, attention control, and emotional regulation.
  • Transcendental Meditation promotes calmness, restful alertness, and heightened self-awareness.
  • Loving-kindness Meditation fosters interconnectedness, empathy, and forgiveness.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognise our place in an immensity of light years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of humility and elation combined, is surely spiritual....the notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.
